A one stop shop for all of your Christmas gifts - sounds too good to be true? Bristol's finest independent artisan shops and businesses will be together for one day only to help you solve your Christmas gift list. Head down to the M Shed this Saturday to discover presents and treats from over 50 independent local designers and makers as part of Etsy Made Local 2017. Ranging from ceramics, jewellery, stationery, cards and fashion, this will be a treasure trove of local talent and thoughtfully made pieces that will be sure to delight this Christmas.
I've picked out my favourites that you will be able to find at the market this weekend, if you're there quick (I'm sure these will sell out).
Bird Can Fox - Recent collaborations with Anthropologie have made her treasures in porcelain and ceramic even more sought after. Be quick to get your paws on one of these beautiful handmade pieces, definitely one you won't want to gift away, keep this for yourself!
Little Paisley Designs - Attempt to not buy the whole stall, I dare you. I love Ellie's 2018 calendar and fridge magnets, but to be honest I could easily swipe up everything.
Sunshine for Breakfast - Cheerful motivation can be lacking in these winter months. Pep yourself up with some feel good inspirational prints and cards for your work desk. Or gift to someone who needs a little sunshine in their life.
Pipistrelle Design - My thing for ceramics runs deep, I can't resist these beautiful porcelain mushrooms. So tactile and even more stunning in real life, the feel of porcelain in your hands really is wonderful.
Hello Harriet - Cat and dog lovers rejoice, hand illustrated goodies for your furry pals or pet fans in general. Go crazy for the prettiest pastels, hand lettering and illustrations from Bath based Harriet Gray.
Bristol Etsy Team are hosting Etsy Made Local on 2nd December from 10am to 4pm at M Shed, Wapping Wharf, Bristol.
